Mixing it Up with a Tag

Hello there..
Michelle back to share with you what I have been playing around with this month.
Now Lydell is super with the monthly challenges and I must admit I have been too busy for ages to play around with them. I have been printing them all out and have had grand plans to play along for a few months.
So this month I decided enough was enough... I just HAD to play. Especially when I saw the super cute tag Lydell  had designed for Helmar

So.. I played around with the tag a bit and here is what I came up with.

Super easy with the tag sketch to give me some inspiration.
Now I am not much of a tag person... I don't tend to make them much as a stand alone item.
So.. Here's what I did with my tag.


I decided to use the tag as the main embellishment on a layout so to tie it all together I used the staples from the tag sketch to staple the bakers twine across the page. Then used same Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots to adhere some extra hearts along the twine and some Helmar Gemstone Glue to adhere some silver dew drops I had scattered through it all.
I decided to add my buckle separately next to the tag through a piece of ribbon. Now because this was rather bulky I used some Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots to adhere it in place.
So... I am now a convert. I loved making up this tag and look forward to using this tag sketch to create a few tags in the future.
Why not give this months Make a Tag Helmar Challenge a go.
